Over the years, Korn’s been making albums that would go way high up in the Billboard charts. Korn’s got a couple of No. 1 albums which were “Follow the Leader” and “Issues” which are both great records. Korn’s also got other albums that hit the top 5.
Their debut record which was a flop hit 72 and that’s the album that has that hit song “Shoots and Ladders”. Their first album didn’t become a huge hit ’til years later, though. Remember, they were controversial at first when they were first coming out.
Korn’s newest album “Requiem” fails to hit the top 10 this time around in the Billboard 200 but still no. 14 is decent.
I wouldn’t blame the band that they didn’t make it high in the charts this time. It’s still a great album and the best in the band’s career, in my opinion. You can blame the “anti-rock” music industry. Music industry is still dominated by pop, rap and country.
I take a look at the Billboard Charts lately and I haven’t heard most of the artists on it like WTF?
The new Korn is still pretty great though. It’s really too bad they couldn’t make it high on the Billboard this time. These days it’s tough for any rock and metal band to make it to the top 10 in the Billboard 200 when we have an “anti-rock” industry!
